REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

To the Citizens of Cohasset: 

This year's activities continued on a path of increased involvement by the 
board on a multitude of matters as the decade of the seventies took its leave, hi 
addition to usual weekly meetings, many others were held throughout the year 
in special session and with other boards and committees. 

Long-term board member, Mary Jeanette Murray cognizant of her duties 
as Representative in the General Court for the Third Plymouth District chose 
not to seek re-election. There is no doubt that her expertise will be missed but 
she will continue to serve the Town well in that capacity with her energetic, 
untiring dedication to pubHc service. 

Newly elected member, Rocco F. Laugelle comes to the board with wide ex- 
perience and proven concern for Town affairs having served as a water and 
sewer commissioner and on many other committees over the past fifteen years. 
He brings a new dimension to the board which will prove invaluable in the 
years ahead. 

The board carried out the charge of the 1979 annual town meeting by imple- 
menting the following projects: 

(a) Refurbished harbor seawalls with hydraulically applied concrete as re- 
quired by Article 2 1 . 

(b) Installed a corrective drainage system on Pleasant Street in accordance 
with Article 25. 

(c) Entered into a joint venture with the town of Hull for a comprehensive 
study of Strait's Pond and surrounding area which is progressing on 
schedule (Article 34). 

(d) Resurfaced 2,000 ft. of roadway in the Woodside Cemetery as authorized 
by Article 76. 

(e) Completed reconstruction of the practice area at Milliken Field under 
Article 17, except for final seeding which will be done next spring. 

(f) Performed authorized repairs and painted certain town buildings within 
the very limited budget provided for such purposes. 

In other matters, construction of the storm-damaged Atlantic Avenue cause- 
way was completed and opened to traffic. Its cost, amounting to approximately 
$475,000. was assumed entirely by the Federal Government. 

Easements were obtained and an engineering firm engaged to prepare plans 
and specifications to rebuild the breakwater beyond the end of Howard Gleason 
Road. A contract will be awarded early in 1980 for the $40,000. project which 



20 



iS also entirely funded by the Federal Government. 

The board, through its chairman, arranged for one-hundred percent Federal 
Funding for reconstruction of the main harbor breakwater at a cost of approxi- 
mately $300,000. It was completed under the management of the Town of 
Scituate because the seawall is within their waters. 

The board also entered into an arrangement with the County of Norfolk 
upon the recommendation of William S. Signorelli, Town Accountant, to 
process water department accounts through the county's I.B.M. computer in 
Dedham. A program was developed to meet the town's needs and all accounts 
are "on-line". It is planned that other accounting functions will be processed 
likewise with greater efficiency and at a tremendous saving to the town. As the 
workload permits, a remote input terminal can provide direct access to the com- 
puter, which is being made available to all towns in the county, based on this 
pilot program. 

The energy crisis is a problem, which will bother us for some time to come. 
All possible measures are being taken to keep energy costs at a minimum with- 
out reducing services. The board will continue to closely monitor the uses of 
electricity, fuel oil, natural gas and gasoline by various departments to reduce 
consumption and partially offset increasing costs. 

Federal revenue sharing and the comprehensive employment training pro- 
gram (C.E.T.A.) continued on a downward trend again this year imposing 
additional financial burden upon the town. It is anticipated that these sources 
of income will continue to decrease. 

The board wishes to extend special recognition to William S. Signorelli who 
has worked diligently to improve accounting methods in the interest of con- 
trolling costs and also for his assistance in implementing an effective cash man- 
agement program in conjunction with Treasurer-Collector, Gordon E. Flint. 

The other members of the board are grateful for Chairman, Arthur L. 
Clark's daily attention to the affairs of the office which has occupied a dispro- 
portionate amount of his time. Many of the aforementioned activities could 
not have progressed so smoothly, or even existed, without his watchful eye on 
every detail with complete dedication to the town. 

The entire board thanks all those citizens, officials, employees, boards and 
committees who have demonstrated complete cooperation over the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur L. Clark, Chairman 
Henry W. Ainslie, Jr. 
Rocco F. Laugelle

REPORT OF THE HARBOR STUDY COMMITTEE FOR 1979 



In 1979 Cohasset Harbor underwent a number of changes to improve the 
overall safety of the harbor, strengthen its shoreline walls, and increase mooring 
facilities. 

1. The breakwall was dismantled and rebuilt to its original height to protect 
the area of the harbor that is open to northeast storms. 

2. Boat operation at the fishermen's float at Government Island has been 
improved through the removal of 450 cubic yards of dredged material. 

3. Town owned walls from the Sailing Club to Veterans Park and around 
to the Cox estate were sealed by concrete spraying to resist erosion and 
cracking. 

4. Four more boats were able to be moored in the harbor through improved 
mooring racks. 

A master plan for the future of the harbor was started with the assistance of 
the planning firm of Anderson-Nichols of Boston. This effort is a continuation 
of the Coastal Zone Management plan for the town that was completed in 1977 
with the help of the same firm. 

Town funds for the above work were kept low by using grants and emergency 
funds from both state and federal agencies. 

State legislation passed in 1979 requires that personal property taxes levied 
on boats be payed to the town in which the boat is moored on the first of July. 
Tax revenues that had been previously paid to Cohasset have been lost to 
Scituate since about one tliird of the area of the harbor is inside the boundaries 
of Scituate. The Harbor Committee will be working with Scituate Harbor offi- 
cials to make proposals to bring about a balanced arrangement for the financial 
requirement of Cohasset Harbor. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles G. Fink, Chairman 
Cohasset Harbor Study Committee

April 7, 1979 Report of the Police Chief Selection Committee. As Chairman 
of the Police Chief Selection Committee, I have a brief report to make. The 
Committee was created at the 1978 Town Meeting and given the task of for- 
warding to the Selectmen, at an appropriate time, the names of three persons 
whom we judge to be qualified as the next Police Chief of Cohasset. From 
among those three names the Selectmen are to choose a successor to Chief 
Feola after his resignation or retirement. 

In a letter to the Selectmen, our incumbent Chief has stated that he will 
leave office on July 28, 1980, his 65th birthday. 

I speak for the entire Committee in stating that we hope to use that Hmited 
time wisely in preparing for one of the most important decisions to be made in 
our community next year. 



It is impossible to overstate the importance of the role and function of a 
Chief of Police, especially in a small community such as Cohasset. Not only does 
he give direction and support to the persons on the Police Force; he also has 
an important role in relation to the community as a whole, representing as he 
does public safety, order, and fairness. 

We take very seriously the responsibility you have given to us. We have 
spent many hours on it, and will spend many more before our job is done. 

Right now, we need the help of every citizen of Cohasset. We need to know 
what kind of PoHce Chief you think Cohasset needs. What are the formal quali- 
fications and the informal qualities of personality which you regard as important 
in our next Chief? 

In order to listen to your answers to these questions, we have scheduled 
a Public Hearing on the topic "Cohasset's Next Police Chief: What Do We Want?" 

The hearing will be on April 24 at 7:30 P.M. in the Town Hall. We invite 
every citizen of Cohasset to share your ideas and hopes with our Committee. 
If you cannot be present on April 24, please send a written description of what 
you thing we ought to be looking for. 

Members and heads of other town departments, along with elected and 
appointed officials, and of course members of the Cohasset Police Department, 
are cordially welcome at the Hearing. (Needless to say, our concern in the 
Hearing will be to consider the qualifications and quahties of our next Chief, 
not our incumbent Chief.) 

Please mark down the date and time: April 24, at 7:30 P.M. at the Town 
Hall. 

"Cohassct's Next Pohce Chief: What Do We Want?" 

Thank You.

Police Chief Selection Committee: Rev. John M. Benbow, Chairman, John 
Keefe, Margaret Lynch, Richard Silvia and John Thompson. 

ARTICLE 4. (Inserted by the Board of Selectmen, Arthur L. Clark, Chair- 
man, and others.) 

To see if the Town will vote to fix the salaries and compensation of Elected 
Officers, and to see what sums the Town will vote to raise and appropriate, from 
available funds, or otherwise, for the payment of said salaries and compensation, 
expenses, equipment and outlays, capital and otherwise, of the several Town 
Departments, for the ensuing fiscal year, or to act on anything relating thereto.

the question shall speak if they so desire. 

(g) When a question is to be voted on for which only a majority vote is 
required, the decision of the meeting shall be determined by the voices of 
the voters, and the Moderator shall promptly announce the vote as it 
appears to him by sound. If the Moderator is unable to determine the vote 
by the sound of the voices, or if his announcement is thereupon doubted by 
seven or more voters rising in their places for that purpose, the Moderator 
shall without debate determine the vote in either of the following ways: 

(i) by ordering a hand vote, for which he may appoint tellers to 
make and report the count, or 

(ii) by ordering a vote by ballot of the Meeting. 

(h) If, after debate, the Meeting so orders, or if, upon recommendation 
of the Advisory Committee, the Moderator so orders (subject to appeal as 
provided in paragraph (1) in this Section), the vote on any motion shall be 
taken in one of three ways: 

(i) by a hand vote, 

(ii) by a vote with the use of a check list, or 

(iii) by a "yes" or "no" ballot with or without use of a check 

list.

(iii) to stop debate ("previous question") 

(iv) to postpone to a certain time; 

(v) to commit; or 

(vi) to amend, 

and these motions shall have precedence in the order stated. The first three 
shall be decided without debate, and the latter three may be debated. 
Motions to lay on the table or to stop debate require at least a two-thirds 
vote. 

When proposed amendments involve amounts, if to purchase, the 
largest amount, or, if to sell, the smallest amount, shall be put to a 
vote first. 



(k) A motion to reconsider any vote may be made at an adjourned 
session of the Meeting only if the mover of this motion has given notice at 
the session of the Meeting at which the vote was taken, of his intention to 
make such motion at an adjourned session. There can be no reconsideration 
of a vote once it has been reconsidered or after a vote not to reconsider it. A 
motion to reconsider any vote must be made before the final dissolution of 
the Meeting during which the vote was taken. 

Nothing contained in this paragraph, however, shall prevent or be 
construed as preventing the reintroduction of any matter in an article of the 
warrant for a subsequent Town Meeting. 

(1) Any voter may appeal from the decision of the Moderator, and when 
his appeal is properly seconded by seven or more voters, no other business, 
except a motion to adjourn to a fixed time or to lay on the table, shall be in 
order until the question of appeal has been decided. The appeal shall be 
decided without debate and by a hand vote. If there is a tie vote, the 
Moderator's decision stands. 

(m) The duties of the Moderator and the government of the Town 
Meeting, not specifically provided for by law or in this Article II shall be 
determined by the rules of practice recommended in "Town Meeting Time: 
Practical Handbook of Parliamentary Law" (Johnson, Trustman, & Wadsworth, 
1962), so far as they are appropriate for the conditions and powers of the 
Town.

with plants, trees or shrubs, not construed to prevent the meeting of 
requirements certified by a duly authorized public officer to be necessary for 
public safety because of an unsafe or dangerous condition, nor construed to

Section 8. Commission Procedure 

(a) Meetings 

Meetings of the Commission shall be held at the call of the Chairman, or, 
in the absence of the Chairman, the Vice-Chairman, and they shall be 
called at the request of two members of the Commission and in such other 
manner as the Commission may determine in its rules. Meetings shall also 
be posted at least forty-eight hours in advance. 

(b) Quorums and Voting 

A majority of the members of the Commission shall constitute a quorum, 
but the concurring vote of a majority of the members of the Commission 
(including alternate member or members if one or more regular members 
are absent or otherwise unable to act) shall be necessary to issue the 
certificates described above and to determine whether a public hearing is 
required as specified below. 

(c) Initial Determinations 

The Commission shall determine promptly, and in all events within 
fourteen days after the filing of an application for a certificate of appropri- 
ateness, a certificate of nonapplicability or a certificate of hardship, as the 
case may be, whether the application involves any exterior architectural 

feature which is subject to approval by the Commission, and if the 
Commission determines that such application involves any such feature 
which is subject to approval by the Commission, the Commission shall 
thereafter hold a public hearing on such application unless such hearing is 
dispensed with as hereinafter provided. 

(d) Dispensing with Public Hearings 

A public hearing on an application need not be held if (i) such hearing is 
waived in writing by all persons entitled to notice thereof, or (ii) if the 
Commission determines that the exterior architectural feature involved or 
its category, as the case may be, is so insubstantial in its effect on the 
Historic District that it may be reviewed by the Commission without public 



129 



hearing on the application, provided, however, that if the Commission 
dispenses with a pubUc hearing on an apphcation, notice of the apphcation 
shall be given to the owners of all adjoining property and other property 
deemed by the Commission to be materially affected thereby as hereinafter 
provided in Section 8(e) and ten days shall elapse after the mailing of such 
notice before the Commission may act upon such application. 

(e) Public Hearings 

If the Commission decides to hold a public hearing on any application, it 
shall fix a reasonable time for such hearing and shall give public notice of the 
time, place and purposes thereof at least fourteen days before said hearing 
in such manner as it may determine, and by mailing, postage prepaid, a copy 
of said notice to the applicant, to the owners of all adjoining property and 
other property deemed by the Commission to be materially affected 
thereby as they appear on the most recent real estate tax list of the Board of 
Assessors, to the Cohasset Planning Board, to any resident of or property 
owner in the Town of Cohasset filing written request for notice of hearings, 
such request to be renewed yearly in December with the Town Clerk, and to 
such other persons as the Commission shall believe should receive notice. 

(f) Certificates of Appropriateness 

If the Commission determines that the construction or alteration for 
which an application for a certificate of appropriateness has been filed will 
be appropriate for or compatible with the preservation or protection of the 
Historic District, the Commission shall cause a certificate of appropri- 
ateness to be issued to the applicant. In the case of a disapproval of an 
application for a certificate of appropriateness the Commission shall place 
upon its records the reasons for such determination and shall forthwith 
cause a notice of its determination, accompanied by a copy of the reasons 
therefor as set forth in the records of the Commission, to be issued to the 
applicant, and the Commission may make recommendations to the applicant 
with respect to appropriateness of design, arrangement, texture, material 
and similar features. Prior to the issuance of any disapproval the Com- 
mission may notify the applicant of its proposed action accompanied by 
recommendations of changes in the applicant's proposal which, if made, 
would make the application acceptable to the* Commission. If within 
fourteen days of the receipt of such notice the applicant files a written 
modification of his application in conformity with the recommended 
changes of the Commission, the Commission shall cause a certificate of 
appropriateness to be issued to the applicant. 

(g) Certificates of Nonapplicability 

In the case of a determination by the Commission that an application for 
a certificate of appropriateness or for a certificate of nonapplicability does 
not involve any exterior architectural feature, or involves an exterior 



130 



architectural feature which is not then subject to review by the Commission 
in accordance with the provisions of Section 7 , the Commission shall cause a 
certificate of nonapplicability to be issued to the applicant. 

(h) Certificates of Hardship 

If the construction or alteration for which an application for a certificate 
of appropriateness has been filed shall be determined to be inappropriate, 
or in the event of an appHcation for a certificate of hardship, the 
Commission shall determine whether, owing to conditions especially 
affecting the building or structure involved, but not affecting the Historic 
District generally, failure to approve an application will involve a sub- 
stantial hardship, financial or otherwise, to the applicant and whether such 
appHcation may be approved without substantial detriment to the public 
welfare and without substantial derogation from the intent and purposes of 
this By-law. If the Commission determines that owing to such conditions 
failure to approve an application will involve substantial harship to the 
applicant and approval thereof may be made without such substantial 
detriment or derogation, or, in the event of failure to make a determination 
on an application within the time specified in Section 8(k), the Commission 
shall cause a certificate of hardship to be issued to the applicant. 

(i) Execution of Certificates 

Each certificate issued by the Commission shall be dated and signed by 
its Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary or such other person designated by 
the Commssion to sign such certificates on its behalf. 

(j) Rules, Regulations and Permanent Records 

The Commission shall keep a permanent record of its resolutions, trans- 
actions and determinations and of the vote of each member participating 
therein, and may adopt and amend such rules and regulations not 
inconsistent with the provisions of this By-law or Chapter 40C of the 
Massachusetts General Laws and prescribe such forms as it shall deem 
desirable and necessary for the regulation of its affairs and the conduct of its 
business. The Commission shall also file a copy of any such rules and 
regulations with the Town Clerk. 

(k) Final Determinations 

Final determinations on applications shall be made by the Commission 
as soon as convenient after either its original receipt of each application (if 
no pubHc hearing is to be held) or after said public hearing, but in all event 
within sixty days after the filing of the application, or within such further 
time as the applicant may allow in writing, and if the Commission shall fail to 
make a determination within such period of time, the Commission shall 
thereupon issue to the applicant a certificate of hardship. 



131 



(1) Specific Criteria 

The Commission may after public hearing set forth in such manner as it 
may determine the various designs of certain appurtenances, such as solar 
energy equipment and wind-activated power- generating equipment which 
will meet the requirements of the Historic District, and a roster of certain 
colors of paint and roofing materials which will meet the requirements of the 
Historic District, but no such determination shall limit the right of an 
applicant to present other designs or colors to the Commission for its 
approval. 

Section 9. Review Procedure 

Any applicant aggrieved by a determination of the Commission may, 
within twenty days after the filing of the notice of such determination with

the Commission unless it shall appear to the Court that the appellant acted 
in bad faith or with malice in making the appeal to the Court.

I would like to expecially thank Laurence Mitchell and Robert Leonard, 
Town Plumbing and Gas Inspectors, the Town Counsel, and Board of Selectmen, 
for their cooperation and assistance during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT FROM THE BOARD OF HEALTH 



In 1979 Rene Chaisson retired after 14 years of service to the Board of 
Health. He is sorely missed for his honesty and dedication. 

Because of demands on his professional Hfe, Dr. Stephen O'Connor also 
resigned. Dr. O'Connor chaired the Board through some difficult times and his 
parting is a loss to the Town. 

The single most significant incident for the Board of Health this past year 
was a legal action involving Lot 24, Surrey Drive, between one property owner 
and an abuttor. This action involved the Board, the Town, its officers and its 
agent. Details are too lengthy to describe here. At the time of this writing, a 
decision has still yet to be rendered by the Master. 

It is significant, however, to report for several reasons. It has cost the Town 
a considerable amount of time and money. It signals a new era, one in which 
abuttors attempt to use the Board of Health and Title V in order to attempt to 
prevent others from constructing on Lots otherwise approved by the appropriate 
Town Boards. (There have been several cases before the Board this year in which 
it was obvious that neighbors and abuttors, without foundation, attempted to 
prevent construction simply because they did not wish their view obstructed. 
This is clearly not the function of the Board of Health since it does not involve 
sanitary conditions, but should be taken up with other Town Boards.) 

For the Board of Health, it becomes imperative to know well the legal in- 
terpretation of its rules. It must record its meetings, notes and correspondence 
very accurately. To prevent further legal action, the Board must have accurate 
working knowledge of Title V, (which it is generally agreed, is vague and legally 
untested in many areas). The Board must document by tape recordings and 
written letters, all correspondence. This will require more time, space and money 
than has been previously allotted to the Board. 

This past year was notable also in that several newspaper reporters attended 
some sessions. While their reports were not always accurate, they are a most wel- 
come addition to the Board meetings, and hopefully in the future, will be a 
source of accurate reporting, information and education. 

Many Townspeople are still concerned, but uninformed, in regards to per- 
colation tests, water tables, and rules regarding the keeping of horses and other 
animals. The Health Agent is available to assist any citizen with questions on 
these matters and should be consulted. 

In 1977, the Commonwealth passed legislature resulting in Title V, which 
establishes rules for the disposal of sewerage. This, and other legislative acts 
concerning common sewering and environmental protection, has removed a 
great deal of authority from the local Boards of Health. The Board, therefore, 
has started and is continuing to modify, update, and reorganize its Rules and 
Regulations, which project will hopefully be completed this Spring. 

179 



The present Board, and the previous Board of Health, have consistently 
agreed and recommended that common sewering be extended to "The Hillside". 

To function more thoroughly, the Board should have a full-time secretary 
and an assistant to the Health Agent, to be employed for the time-consuming 
job of observing percolation tests and observation holes. The fee should be in- 
creased from $15.00 to $50.00 to the appHcant. This should easily compen- 
sate for the services for the special assistant, and would be in line with 'fees 
charged by surrounding towns. 

If the above recommendations are enacted, the Health Agent should then 
be able to spend more time inspecting pubHc faciHties and restaurants, doing 
water tests, dye tests, and cultures, all of which would insure more sanitary 
conditions for the Town and be of greater assistance in future planning of 
development and common sewering. 

A fast approaching problem for the Board of Health is the limited life ex- 
pectancy of the Town Sanitary Landfill operation, which is anticipated to be 
about four years according to engineering consultants under the guide lines 
imposed by laws of the the Commonwealth. Towards solving this problem, 
the Selectmen, have appointed a Committee to be chaired by Mr. John Ridge, 
to study this problem and make recommendations to the Board and the Town. 

It is the responsibility of the Board of Health to maintain sanitary conditions 
throughout the Town. It should attempt to do this with minimum restriction 
of freedom being imposed on any of its individual citizens. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Roger A. Pompeo, M.D. 
Chairman, Board of Health

PERSONNEL 

As stated in previous reports the Table of Organization of the department 
calls for twenty -eight officers and men. At present all positions are filled and the 
department is at full strength. 

Unfortunately the use of sick leave has been high, a result of injuries and 
medical conditions requiring fairly long periods of recuperation. This has 
resulted in use of overtime hiring in order to maintain a safe level of manpower 
for responding to and handling emergency incidents. 

All personnel of the department have been involved in a continuing program 
of in-service training in the various aspects of firefighting and first aid pro- 
cedures. A program of in-service inspection of various occupancies has been 
conducted by personnel on the various groups and also a program of pre-fire 
planning of structures that would create more than the usual of problems in 
extinguishment and containment. 

EQUIPMENT 

Every length of fire hose was subjected to a hydrostatic pressure test, 
examined for injury, washed and dried. Repairs and replacements were made as 
necessary. This is essential in maintaining and prolonging the useful and depend- 
able life of hose and preventing failure at times of emergencies. 

In addition to the required regular maintenance of apparatus — lubrication, 
tune-ups, tires and adjustments, etc. It was necessary to do work on the elec- 
trical systems, brake systems, fire pumps and the sheet metal of some of the 
units. The greater part of this work was done by the department mechanic and 
other department personnel. It should be kept in mind that the age of the 
apparatus ranges in age from 1973 - the newest, to 1950 - the oldest. As 
apparatus becomes older the availability of replacement parts becomes more 
difficult. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

I respectfully make the following recommendation for your consideration 
and support: 

The construction of a modern, more spacious and safe structure to house the 
personnel and apparatus presently quartered at the North Cohasset and Beech- 



186 



wood Fire Stations. Consolidation of these men and the apparatus into a more 
centralized location and into a modern better equipped faciHty would result in 
better utiHzation of manpower and equipment. 

CONCLUSION 

In closing I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all 
of the Officers and Men of the department for their cooperation, and their 
enthusiasm and dedication to duty. 

To the Board of Selectmen, all other town departments and boards, my 
thanks for their support, cooperation and guidance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles Piepenbrink 
Chief of Fire Department 
and Forest Fire Warden 



REPORT OF THE SEALER OF WEIGHTS & MEASURES 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

I hereby sumit my annual report. 

The various weighing and measuring devices in the Town of Cohasset have 
been carefully tested. One hundred thirty-five were sealed, two adjusted, one 
not sealed and two were condemned. 

The amount of $280.00 seaUng fees and $2.00 adjustment fees were collected 
and paid to the treasurer. 

Retail stores were checked for Unit pricing. 

Retail fuel delivery trucks were checked. The Town does not own testing 
equipment for these tanks. They are tested and sealed in another Town. 

Any citizen who has a complaint regarding short weights or measures, please 
call the Sealer. 

It is not legal to sell firewood by the truckful or load. It must be sold by the 
cubic foot or cubic meter. 128 cubic feet equals 1 cord. 

Respectfully submittted, 

Lot E. Bates 

Sealer of Weights & Measures

REPORT OF THE COHASSET WIRE DEPARTMENT 



I herewith submit the Annual Report of the Wire Department for the year 
1979. 

FIRE AND TRAFFIC SIGNALS 

Some fifteen thousand feet of fire alarm wire were installed this past year 
on Nichols Road, Jerusalem Road, Beechwood Street, and Gushing Highway, 
replacing wire that has been a problem in the past. One new fire box was added 
to the system. All traffic lights were painted and put in good working condition. 

WIRE INSPECTION 

All work done by electrical contractors was inspected by the Department; 
fees turned into the Town Treasurer. 

TOWN BUILDINGS 

All electrical work and repairs were done by the Wire Department and build- 
ings owned by the Town. 

I wish to thank the Board of Selectmen for their cooperation with the De- 
partment, and the men who worked with me in this, another very busy year; a 
job well done. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stephen F. Wigmore 
Superintendent of Wire Department

REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY SURVEYOR 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Cohasset Citizens: 

I hereby submit my Annual Report. 

In May, our department completed the installation of new drainage on 
Doane Street. This was accomplished with funds appropriated by Article 38, 
voted at the 1978 Annual Town Meeting. This phase completes the revised 
drainage project on Doane Street. 

With funds appropriated by Article 25 at the 1979 Town Meeting, we in- 
stalled new drainage on Pleasant Street. This included two new catch basins and 
400 feet of pipe and a concrete headwall. In all, our department installed four- 
teen (14) new catch basins and over 1,000 feet of new drainage pipes in various 
sections of town. 

With money appropriated at the Special Town Meeting last Fall, we re- 
surfaced, in cooperation with the Town of Hingham, a 700 foot section of 
Hull Street. With funds remaining from a Chapter 90 appropriation, an 1800 
foot section of Forest Avenue was resurfaced. We also resurfaced, with Type I 
bituminous concrete, over 5,100 feet of roadway, including sections of Pond 
Street, So. Main Street, Beechwood Street and Norman Todd Road. We also 
resurfaced over 5100 feet of sidewalks on Ripley Road, No. Main Street, So. 
Main Street, Border Street and Red Gate Lane. 

We resurfaced, with mix-in -place, sections of Jerusalem Road and Black Rock 
Road, totaling over 4000 feet. Our department also used 6000 gallons of MC800 
hot oil for surface treatment on various roadways in town. This is a continuing 
program, and very valuable because it helps to preserve the present pavement. 

Most all brooks and streams were cleaned, using mostly temporary summer 
help. Fences were repaired, and, where necessary, replaced. Street signs were 
repainted, and damaged or missing signs replaced. All streets and roadways were 
swept several times during the year. 

At this time, I would like to thank the men of my department and other 
town departments for their continuing cooperation. I would like to especially 
thank the members of the Advisory Board for their affirmative vote in appro- 
priating funds for the new truck and sander for our department. They are very 
valuable additions to our equipment. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harold W. Litchfield 
Highway Surveyor

REPORT OF THE HARBORMASTER 



The department feels there was much accomplished in the year of 1979. 

1. The addition of five new floats and two new runways at a cost of $23,000, 
totally funded by the Federal Government as damage caused by the 
February 6, 1978 storm. 

2. The final phases of guniting all the Town owned walls around the perim- 
eter of the Harbor, partially funded by the Government. 

3. Maintenance dredging in front of Government Island floats which was 
badly needed. 

4. Replacement of seven mercury vapor flood lights with sodium Ughts 
which resulted in a savings of approximately $10.00 per month in utility 
charges. Also, a 400 watt light and pole was installed in the area of the 
Saihng Club which had been a trouble spot for vandaHsm and theft in the 
past. 

5. The rebuilding of the breakwater on Bassings Beach at a cost of $241,000, 
totally funded by the Federal Government. The Department made ex- 
treme efforts to have the wall elevated from 12' to 14' and extended 150', 
but the Government would replace only what was in existence prior to the 
storm. 

6. Receipt of a grant of $17,000 from the Coastal Zone Management in 
conjunction with a $5,000 appropriation by the Town for updated study 
and long-range plans for the Harbor and its facilities to be used as a guide 
Hne in years to come. This study is now in progress and hopefully will 
be completed by this year's Annual Town Meeting, 

7. This will be the first year that all Commercial Boats using the Yacht Club 
Basin for a winter mooring berth will be stationed on their own moorings. 
This gives the fishermen easier access to the channel when the Harbor is 
frozen over. 

8. A project forthcoming is the rebuilding of the breakwater between the 
BeUamine property and the first dolphin. This project has been made 
possible through the cooperation of the Archdiocese of Boston and will 
be totally funded by the State and Federal Governments thanks to the 
extensive efforts of Arthur Clark, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen. 
This work should be completed by the end of 1980. 

9. An increase of 16% was noted in vandalism and theft during this past year. 
I'm taking the necessary steps to see if this can be brought under control. 
I will be requesting a more efficient boat to be used for Night Patrol. I 
am attempting to establish the right to confer the powers of Assistant 



190 



Harbormaster upon the person assigned to Night Patrol during his working 
hours, and am hoping to be able to attract better qualified personnel for 
this position. 

10. There was too much time spent in court enforcing waiting Ust and mooring 
procedures at a substantial cost to the Town. All cases were found in favor 
of the Town. It is the responsibility of each boat owner as well as potential 
boat owners to familiarize themselves with the regulations pertaining to 
the Harbor in order to avoid unnecessary infractions of the laws. 

My personal thanks and appreciation to the Harbor Department personnel. 
Thanks also to the Highway, Tree and Park, Water and Wire Departments for 
their willing assistance at any time called upon, leaving me once again most 
appreciative of the good inter-department cooperation I have always experienced. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry H. Ritter, Harbormaster 



REPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT ISLAND COMMITTEE 

1979 was a busy year at the Island. The damage from the storm of 1978 
was repaired; the sea wall from the Sailing Club to the Fishermen's Wharf was 
gunited. The new Saihng Club building was constructed and its sanitary facilities 
were built at the upper parking lot level. The shed on the water side of the old 
oil house was removed and the building is being reroofed. The former sailing 
club classroom building is in the process of being removed. Beautification of 
the grounds will start with the fair weather of springtime. Work is now in 
progress on the old storage house on the hill. It is expected that this will have to 
be extended over several years when funds permit. 

The Committee wishes to express its gratitude to the anonymous donor who 
made the new Sailing Club possible. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin A. Young 
Chairman

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 
SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT FOR 1979 

Submitted, herewith, is a report of the South Shore Mosquito Control Project 
in 1979. 

The Project is a year round operation of ten adjoining communities cooperat- 
ing in a joint effort to reduce mosquitoes. The Project includes the City of 
Quincy and the nine towns of Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, 
Marshfield, Norwell, Scituate and Weymouth. These communities cover an area 
of 170 square miles with a population of approximately 250,000 inhabitants. 

The Project was established in 1953 under a Massachusetts General Law, 
Chapter 252. The Project communities are in a voluntary membership. The 
Project's policy is set by a board of commissioners, administered by a super- 
intendent. This policy, administration and operation are overseen by the State 
Reclamation Board. 

The report covers the period from November 1, 1978 to October 31, 1979, 
beginning in late fall when project crews were busy cleaning silt, sand and 
growth from obstructed ditches and creeks of the marshlands. 

WINTER — The fair, cool and open winter weather did favor the Project in 
allowing outside activities. Water management projects were performed through- 
out the winter months on both salt marshes and inland swamps. 

Walking surveys were conducted along all salt marsh ditches, creeks and 
estuaries. Where necessary, all blocks and obstructions were removed to increase 
drainage of storm waters and to improve tidal flushing action. 

The clearing of obstruction in brooks and streams in the upland wet areas 
was done. Clearing of brush and growth in many wet areas was necessary for the 
purpose of access. 

During the inclement days, the overhauling and maintenance of all spray 
equipment was performed in preparation for the mosquito season. 

SPRING - The early weather of March was cool and fair allowing continua- 
tion of water management projects. Warm weather followed the latter part of 
the month initiating the checking of woodland pools to determine the presence 
of mosquito larvae. The areas found breeding were plotted on topographic maps 
prior to spring aerial larvaciding. 

The warm weather of the early spring continued into the months of April 
and mid May, advancing the development of the spring mosquitoes by three 
weeks. 

The Project commenced the annual aerial larvaciding program, completing 
this by mid May. 



192 



After completing the spring larvaciding, an unusually heavy rain period 
occurred, reflooding many breeding areas and creating a second emergence of 
spring mosquitoes. 

SUMMER — June was a wet month as was July and August, through mid 
September. Flash flooding during some rain storms caused many mosquito 
breeding sites that had been dry for years to hatch out large broods of reflood 
mosquitoes. 

Having received request calls for spray services one month earlier than usual 
and continuing with no let up through mid September when a cool period 
slowed up mosquitoes, the Project had one of it's busiest seasons in recent years. 

The Project participates annually in a spray program to control the Green- 
head Flies and the Midge Flies around the coastal marshes. The season's weather 
being wet and humid gave less of a problem with these insects as in other years. 

FALL — September's cool weather preceded the wet and cool weather of 
October. On the fair days during the fall period, personnel returned to water 
management projects, draining off many breeding areas that had given problems 
during the previous season. 

On the foul weather days of this period, all spray equipment was steam 
cleaned, flushed out, winterized and stored for next season. 

STATISTICS: 

Mosquito larvaciding, checked 2,445 acres by dipping water samples, treated 
495 acres for control of larvae, expending 950 man hours. 

Aerial larvaciding with use of both helicopter and fixed wing aircraft, treated 
9620 acres, expending 262 man hours. 

Mosquito adulticiding, treated 18,200 acres with mobile powered and back 
pack equipment, expending 2349 man hours. 

Mosquito larvaciding and adulticiding with mobile powered and back pack 
equipment, treated 5229 storm catch basins and roadside ditches and approxi- 
mately 2000 coastal rock pools, expending 236 gallons of insecticide and 180 
man hours. 

WA TER MAN A CEMENT: 

Made walking surveys of 22,050 feet of drainage ditches, creeks, brooks and 
streams to determine what might be done to increase flow of stagnant water and 
reduce potential mosquito breeding. 

To flush or drain off stagnant water, 160 feet of new ditch was constructed 
on tidal waterways. 



193 



To maintain ditch work previously constructed, 88,920 feet of marsh ditch- 
ing was reclaimed. 

To maintain the flow of water at it's maximum, 111 ,900 feet of brooks, 
streams and ditches were cleaned of silt, sand, shale, growth and other ob- 
structions blocking or impeding water flow. 

The brushing (cutting) and clearing of 26,500 feet of growth was done. 
The main purpose for this was for access of personnel and equipment to accom- 
plish water management projects or to check and spray mosquito larvae. 

In water management, 2995 man hours were expended. 

The maintenance of all equipment and the garage area is required by all 
personnel. This includes the preventive as well as breakdown maintenance of 
all spray equipment, vehicles, tractors and garage property, the cleaning and 
storing of all equipment and chemical materials and the setting up preparation 
for all operations. 1845 man hours were expended on Project maintenance. 

Vacation time — The average time in service of Project personnel is 20 years, 
most having the maximum vacation time allowed. 680 man hours were expended 
on Project's vacations. 

Sick days are accumulative at 12 days per year. 358 man hours were ex- 
pended on Project's sick time. 

Most all holidays are paid by the Project. 520 man hours were expended on 
hoHdays. 

The Project received 2615 request calls for spray service during the year. Of 
these, approximately 2575 were answered out, attending to the mosquito prob- 
lems in one manner or another. 

Along with regular mosquito duties, the Project conducts three separate town 
greenhead fly control programs, treating 7400 acres of the fly infestation areas. 
Also, two separate brackish water ponds were treated for the control of the 
midge fly. A total of 120 man hours was expended on these control programs. 

Eight commission board meetings were held, totaling 110 man hours. 

The insecticides used by the Project were three: 

1. Abate 4E for mosquito larvaciding at the applied rate of .03 of a pound 
actual to the acre. 

2. Fenthion 4E for mosquito larvaciding in storm catch basins at applied 
rate of ,002 of a pound to a basin. 

3. Malathion 57 E.G. for mosquito adulticiding at applied rates of .05 to .20 
of a pound to the acre.

This past year all Project's field personnel were certified by the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, Department of Food and Agriculture, as pesticide 
applicators in category #47 Mosquito and Biting Fly Control. 

The Project wishes to thank and extend its appreciation for all services and 
assistance extended to it from the commissioners, officials and people of the 
communities in which it serves. 



REPORT OF THE COHASSET CONSERVATION COMMISSION - 1979 



The Conservation Commission serves the town in a regulatory and advisory 
way. It is the only official town agency with the specific duty of protecting 
our natural resources. 

The Commission spends a major portion of its time administering the Wet- 
land Protection Act. The Act protects every wetland by regulating the ways it 
may be altered. Many hearings were held during the year on appHcations under 
the Wetlands Protection Act, Chapter 131, Sec. 40. 

In July, John Hubbard resigned as Chairman remaining on the Commission 
as a member. We wish to extend him our thanks for the contribution he has 
made to the work of the Commission. Patricia Buckley was elected Chairman. 

During the closing weeks of the year the Commission gave its preUminary 
approval on the transfer of the Jones property to the town for a wastewater 
treatment plant site. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE 
TRUSTEES OF THE COHASSET FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY 

1979 was the 100th year of the Cohasset Library. A 100th birthday party 
in June, given by the Friends of the Cohasset Library, and completion of the 
library renovation, commemorated this anniversary. 

The final project of the renovation was installation of a group of directional 
signs, gift of the Friends, designed to help library users locate materials. A large 
floor plan, visible from the rotunda, gives users a guide to the building. Both 
signs and floor plan respond to trustee and staff concem that Cohasset's library 
be a place that is easy and comfortable to use. 

1979 was also a year in which projects deferred during the renovation could 
be considered. 

Among these was disposition of an Audubon copper plate and two sets of 
Audubon books, valuable art objects which the trustees believed inappropriate 
to keep in the Cohasset Library. In accordance with town bylaws, the trustees 
recommended, and the Board of Selectmen authorized, sale at public auction. 
At the November auction of Sotheby Parke Bemet, Inc. in New York City, the 
copper plate was sold for $34,000 to the Stark Museum of Art in Orange, Texas, 
which specializes in Western American art, including Audubon materials. The 
two sets of Audubon books sold for $10,250. The proceeds of the auction 
were turned over to the town treasurer. 

A long-range landscape plan for the library was approved by the trustees 
during the year. The Cohasset Garden Club has very generously decided to 
implement this plan for the town in the spring of 1980. 

The trustees continue to take great pride in Cohasset's wonderful library 
staff, ably headed by Richard E. Hayes. Their devotion to serving library users 
is one of the library's most important assets. 

The Friends of the Cohasset Library, Inc., under Presidents Donna McGee 
and Pat Gwinn, continued in 1979 its exceptional standard of service to the 
library. Their annual book sale, many gifts, varied adult and children's pro- 
grams, and thousands of hours of volunteer time put us all in their debt. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sheila S. Evans 
Chairman, Library Trustees

Correction to the 1978 Annual Town Report, page 238: total loans - 95,247. 

Loans of adult nonfiction went up 16%, and loans of periodicals went up 7%, 
over 1978. 

The library was open for business 337 days in 1979, and average number of 
loans per day was 291. 

Of all new books purchased during the year, 28% of adult books and 47% of 
children's books were added or replacement copies of titles previously owned. 

Of all new books purchased, 23% were paperbacks. 

PERSONNEL (January, 1980) 

Fulltime: Richard E. Hayes, Chief Librarian; Evelyn B. Wood, Susan M. 
Watrous, Librarians. Part-time: Marilyn T. Pope, Jo Ann Mitchell, Librarians; 
Susan M. Pope, Paraprofessional; Nancy Knight, Helene B. Drummond, Bar- 
bara C. Burnham, Clerks; Robert Pattison, Custodian; Heidi Brown, Nancy Cone, 
Michael Keamey, Jennifer Sharpe, Pages. 

NEW REGISTRATIONS IN 1979 

Adult, 459; Children, 167; Total, 626. New registrations represent about 8% 
of the total town population. Approximately 75% of households in Cohasset 
have one or more registered Hbrary users. 

197 



INTERLIBRARY LOANS 

To meet the needs of users, the library requested books, records, photocopies 
of information from cooperating Hbraries of the Regional Library System; 498 
requests were filled, 92 were not available. The filled requests are 34% higher 
than in 1978. Even though these interUbrary loans equal only one-half percent 
of total loans, they represent more effort than a typical loan off the shelf, and 
demonstrate the commitment of the library to provide full access to available 
resources. 

CHILDREN'S SERVICES AND COOPERATION WITH SCHOOLS 

Children's film and story hour programs at the library: 64. Film and story 
telling programs at schools, by library staff: 23. Class visits to the Hbrary for 
orientation: 11. 

Public library staff cooperated with school staff in preparing booklists for 
assignments; preparing and delivering 60 requests totaling 604 books to class- 
rooms and school libraries; advice in materials selection; library instruction for 
students. 

We would like to thank the school department for lending a film projector 
for public library film programs, and for pubUcizing pubHc library activities to 
children and parents. 

The children's Hbrarians have organized a successful program of junior volun- 
teers this year. Twenty-two children completed training sessions and volun- 
teered 711 hours to put away materials, clean up the children's room, and help 
in other ways. 

Eight adults participated in story-telling training sessions, and gave 40 hours 
of service in pre-school story hours. 

FRIENDS OF THE COHASSET LIBRARY 

The support of this 250 member organization is vital to the well-being of the 
library. The Board of Directors consists of thirteen hard-working members, who 
meet monthly to plan and carry out programs of service to the town. Among 
those activities in 1979: sponsored a program by the New England Theater Guild 
for Children; sponsored a lecture on the China Trade by Ellen Woolf; sponsored 
the annual used book sale; awarded paperback books to children in the summer 
reading program; gave library tee-shirts to the junior volunteers; received dona- 
tions to a library book fund; gave Christmas wreaths for the Ubrary; gave the 
library passes to the New England Aquarium, the Museum of Science and the 
Museum of Fine Arts; gave the library a new clock face; and gave the library 
new signs. 

Under the leadership of Shirley Marten, 26 volunteers work in the Hbrary on 
a regular schedule. In 1979, they gave 2,516 hours, more than 48 hours a week. 
Four other volunteers select and deliver books to two nursing homes. This year 



198 



they made 44 visits, delivered 941 books. 

MEMORIAL BOOK GIFTS 

During the year, the library received the following gifts of memorial books: 

In memory of Barbara Pfaffmann, and Cornelia White, from the Community 
Garden Club; 

In memory of Mrs. Richardson White, from the League of Women Voters, 
Cohasset; 

In memory of Jennifer Baird, from the WiUiam E. Baird family, and from 
Girl Scout Troop 113; 

In memory of Mrs. Richardson White, from Parker F. Schofield; 

In memory of Eve Boden Patterson, and Mrs. Eliot Hubbard, Jr., from the 
Cohasset Garden Club; 

In memory of Ralph G. Farrell, and Elliot P. Thayer, from the library staff; 

In memory of Eve Boden Patterson, from James R. Patterson; 

In memory of G. H. & Elizabeth Howkins, from Agnes D. Howkins. 

Gifts of memorial books are welcome. They bring pleasure and knowledge 
to many people for a number of years. Anyone wishing to give a memorial book 
is invited to discuss an appropriate choice with the librarian. 

WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE ON 
LIBRARIES AND INFORMATION SCIENCE 

Cohasset had the honor to have its own John Benbow selected as one of 
thirteen delegates from Massachusetts to attend this conference in Washington, 
D.C. Preceding it was the Massachusetts Conference, to which Mr. Benbow and 
another Cohasset resident, Mrs. Joseph Gwinn, were chosen delegates. The U.S. 
Congress, following years of planning, appropriated five million dollars to 
sponsor fifty state conferences and the national conference in order to obtain 
direction from citizens on important issues of library and information develop- 
ment. In February, 1980, Mr. Benbow will report at an open forum on the work 
of the White House Conference and his views of the future role of the public 
library. Members of the public and library officials and friends from several 
South Shore towns will be invited to attend and participate in this discussion. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Richard E. Hayes 
Chief Librarian

REPORT OF THE RECREATION DIRECTOR 



Having completed our third year of full-time operation, I am pleased to 
report to the citizens of Cohasset, that there continues a steady increase in the 
number of our programs, activities, events, and services designed for all aged 
residents. Also, and perhaps most important, there is a steady increase in the 
numbers of individuals participating in Recreation Department sponsored pro- 
grams and services. 

Each year we add new programs to the former matrix, while, at the same 
time, evaluating and updating existing programs and activities. Recreational 
demands frequently change, in order to afford the best possible services to 
residents, we too must remain dynamic, responsive, and flexible in our pro- 
gramming. In our continuing effort to accompUsh this we invite feed-back and 
comments from all residents. Our office is located on the 1st floor of the Town 
Hall, and our door remains open. 

During the past two years program statistical data has been reported on a 
calendar year basis of November to October, while fiscal data was reported from 
July 1, to June 30, the fiscal year. Program statistics were so reported, as 
November 1976, was our base — the beginning of the Recreation Department. 
Beginning this year, program data will be reported, as is fiscal data, from July 1, 
to June 30 of each year — hence, this year's figures analized comparatively 
with last year's, will indicate a slight drop-off in participants during the past 
year. This, however, is a misrepresentation due to the change in reporting times. 
The 1980 report will reflect the deficit of this year, henceforth reports will be 
truly representative. 

Most recreation programs require a minimal registration fee ranging from 
$4 .00-$ 15. 00. Also, a 50% reduction of fee is granted to second or subsequent 
children from the same family, registering, in a children's, non-self-supporting 
program, at the same time, for the same program. Feedback has indicated that 
the majority concerned is happy with this poHcy. 

During the Fiscal Year 1979, the Recreation Department generated $5,377.00 
via program registration fees. In addition, another $2,583.15 was transacted 
through the Revolving Account Fund established by the State Legislature, and 
adopted at Town Meeting 1978 by the Town of Cohasset. The Revolving Ac- 
count Fund is used for programs of special instruction or activity, that may 
have a relatively few individuals, therefore the programs involved, such as ski 
lessons, music circus performances, etc., become 100% participant paid and 
self supporting. 

During the Fiscal Year 1979, July 1, 1978 to June 30, 1979, 6,828 indivi- 
duals participated in Recreation Department programs, events, and activities. 
Programs ranged from pre-school aged through adult activities. Approximately 
thirty (30) individual programs were offered during that period. 



200 



Both the Youth Soccer and Youth Street Hockey programs remain popular 
and more children are enrolling than previous years. The Summer Playground 
Program's format has changed during the past two (2) seasons and now is operat- 
ing much like a day camp in regard to structure, content, and format. 

This past summer an additional 1/2 day program, for 4 and 5 year olds, 
supplemented the regular, 6-12 year old, full-day program. Attendance and 
participation was higher than anticipated indicating a need for activities within 
that age group. The program, due to its obvious success, will be continued. 

Many recreation programs are offered strictly for fun, while others are 
essentially for teaching of new skills. We are trying to offer both types of pro- 
grams, in as many different types of activities as possible. The tendency seems 
to be about 50-50; fun vs. instruction and both remain popular. 

Many events also remain popular. Band concerts and the summer, Thursday 
evening, movie series both have remained well attended by all aged residents. 
We plan to continue both of these summer events. Band concerts usually are 
conducted on alternate Tuesday evenings, on the Town Common, at 7:30P.M. 
Schedules are available by June 1st of each year. Movies are shown in the Town 
Hall Auditorium each Thursday evening, 7:30 P.M., during the months of July 
and August. Again, schedules are available by June 1st. Both programs are 
offered free of charge. The movie series is co-sponsored by the Paul Pratt 
Memorial Library and the Recreation Department. 

Much work has been accomplished at the Elms Meadow Skating area, off 
Gushing Road and Spring Street during the past year. The area was graded after 
additional fill was brought in. Embankments have been graded and seeded, grass 
now grows helping to control erosion as well as offering an ascetic effect. New 
lights and poles have been added offering much more night visibiHty for skaters. 
Remaining portions of the project will be attempted during the spring of 1980. 
Many Town Boards, Departments, and numerous individuals should be thanked 
for the donation of their time and effort in regard to the project. 

During the past year we have tried to increase our public and press relations 
by submitting articles on the importance of recreation. One of our primary goals 
is to educate the public on the importance and need for recreational outlets for 
all members of our society — not just the young. 

As an added, no charge — no cost service, a job opportunity program for 
Cohasset youth was instituted during the past year. To date over 30 youths have 
been placed on a variety of part-time, continuous and non-continuous jobs 
within the community. The program is on-going and residents who require help 
of any type, whether it be babysitting or yard work, are urged to call the Recrea- 
tion Department Office at 383-6791 to inquire about a referal or placement. 

Many thanks should go to numerous Town Boards, and Departments as well 
as a host of individuals for their continuing help and service which we cannot 
always reciprocate. Also, gratitude should be recognized for the members of 



201 



the Cohasset Recreation Commission for their continuing donation of time and 
work. Current members are: Richard P. Barrow, Chairman; Nancy E. Sladen, 
Vice-Chairman; Alna L. Ekberg, Secretary; Richard D. AinsUe, Eugene K. Price, 
Ernest J. Sullivan, and Hamilton T. Tewksbury, members.

REPORT ON COUNCIL ON AGING 



Open meetings of the Council are held every second Tuesday of the month 
at 10:00 A.M. at the First Parish House. The nine volunteer member board 
meets to discuss plans for the welfare of this very important segment of the 
town's population — the elderly. 

The following programs and activities are made possible through the efforts 
of the Social Service League, the Housing Authority, the Council and over two 
hundred willing dedicated volunteers. 

HEALTH CARE: See report of the Board of Health Services provided by the 
Social Service League. 

HOUSING: See report of the Cohasset Housing Authority. 

INFORMATION: A Council sponsored monthly pubUcation, the VISTA, 
is mailed to over 300 homes each month. To receive this news of upcoming 
social, educational and recreational activities, call 383-1100 weekday mornings. 

NUTRITION: The popular Meals on Wheels program, serving approximately 
5000 meals per year is supervised by volunteers from the Social Service League. 
Six days a week meals are deUvered to the homes of the elderly who need 
assistance in the preparation of food. Special diets can be arranged when neces- 
sary. There is a nominal fee of $1.25 per meal, but additional financial aid can 
be arranged with the Council when necessary. The actual cost of the meals pre- 
pared by the Red Lion Inn is $2.00, with the Council paying the difference. In 
addition, social lunches prepared by the High School are served every Tuesday 
during the school sessions at the First Parish House at 12:30 P.M. Over 30 
volunteers from members of St. Anthony's, St. Stephen's, Second Parish Con- 
gregational and the First Parish Churches serve over the 1300 meals. A charge of 
$.75 is made. Usually a short film is shown after the luncheon. Those interested 
should call 383-1 100 by Monday noon. 

TRANSPORTATION: The Senior Shuttle Bus is a familiar sight around 
town. Driven by over 40 volunteers, approximately 100 trips are made each 
week, Monday through Friday. On Sundays the Church bus is driven by another 
group of over 9 volunteers. For further information on the bus schedules consult 
the VISTA or call 383-082 L 

RECREATION: The Council sponsors one bus trip a year. Consult the

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS 

The Board of Sewer Commissioners would Uke to report a continuation of 
steady progress from our last annual report, which resulted in a location of a 
Wastewater Treatment FaciHty. This was accomplished on the third attempt, 
on February 14, 1980, Special Town Meeting. The Sewer Commissioners have a 
great deal of gratitude to all in presenting their views to them, and specific 
appreciation to the Citizens Advisory Committee. 

The present Board of Sewer Commissioners introduced a solution to our en- 
vironmental problems in an orderly manner, so that the Town could make a 
sensible determination. We will continue to move in an orderly manner, so that 
the next Board of Sewer Commissioners will have a smooth transition and will 
not encounter any difficulty in meeting the deadUnes estabUshed in the consent 
agreement, which was voted on at Special Town Meeting, February 14, 1980. 

The Board would Uke to thank all the townspeople who have shown any 
interest and offered assistance, to the Board of Selectmen, Town Officials, 
Committees, Boards and Department Heads for their cooperation, and to the 
part-time Superintendent and clerk and the plant operators for their efforts in 
making the Sewer Department function.

REPORT OF THE TOWN ARCHIVIST 



This year has been one of continued activity on the project to organize and 
preserve Cohasset's Town Records. The new fireproof vault facility located at 
the High School, authorized under Article 20 of the 1977 Town Meeting, has 
been fully utilized to store the Historic and modem records required by law to 
be kept permanently. Fluorescent lighting has been installed in the vault, and a 
wire screen enclosure constructed around its entrance for additional security, 
and a locked steel cabinet within the vault provides extra protection for old and 
Historically valuable Record Books and Documents. 

Both old and new Town Records are being organized using accepted Archives 
methods. A numbering system has been introduced to facilitate the accurate 
grouping of records of the various Town Offices and Departments, and for ease 
of information retrieval. A comprehensive inventory of the Town's older Record 
Books has been made. Documents and papers of historic value are being placed 
in plastic folders and acid-free envelopes for their continued protection. An 
index card file of the Historic and modern documents has been made. This file 
includes Office, Department, Board and Committee Records as they become 
available, and is designed to serve as a reference file for general use. Additionally, 
the Town's Historic Record Books are being Indexed, starting with the oldest 
records of 1636. Storage of various types of temporary records is being re- 
organized and unneeded temporary records are being disposed of, following 
the procedures required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

I would like to express appreciation to the Board of Selectmen and members 
of the Cohasset Historical Commission who have sponsored the Archive project, 
and to the many people who have assisted. 

Respectfully submitted, 

David Wadsworth 
Town Archivist

REPORT OF THE COHASSET HISTORIC COMMISSION 



TOWN CLOCK: The four dials of the town clock have been repainted and 
the numbers, number bits and the hands will be replaced shortly. The hands 
will be of 3/8" aluminum and gold leafed. The numbers and number bits will 
be of 1/8" brass and gold leafed. Through careful planning we will have a more 
durable job using metal rather than the previously used wooden materials. The 
cost factor will be the same and the job should last indefinitely. 

ARCHIVES: David Wadsworth who is working under a CETA grant has made 
substantial progress with the town archives. He has located, catalogued and filed 
a large amount of valuable Cohasset records. We are indeed fortunate to have 
David do this necessary job in such a diligent, conscientious and professional 
way. The bulk of the work should be finished this fall. 

LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER'S OFFICE: We requested money from the town to 
have the South Shore Vo-Tech School do needed repairs to the Lighthouse 
Keeper's Office on Government Island. Some of the work has been completed 
and the remaining repairs should be initiated for the longevity of the building. 

INVENTORY: The inventory of the historic assets of the town of Cohasset 
is completed. This job has taken five years of hard work and we are pleased with 
the results. With the researched information we hope to have the Bellarmine 
House, the Gropius House, the Cohasset Common and the Government Island 
Complex including Minots light placed on the National Registry of Historic 
Places in America. 

NOTE: Anyone reading this report who would care to become involved with 
the Historic Commission is most welcome, and of course the pubHc is encour- 
aged to attend our meeting held the second Monday of each month.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COHASSET PLANNING BOARD 

This past year has been a particularly busy one for the Planning Board. There 
has been an increase in building and development in the Town requiring the 
Board to review a number of sub-divisions, sub-division approvals not required, 
and business developments. There is every indication that there will be even 
more development in the Town in the coming year. 

Following are statistics for new development in January 1979-80: 

• Two subdivisions creating 22 new building lots 

• Ten sub-divisions now requiring approvals (including so-called "pork 
chop" lots) creating 46 new building lots 

• Three site plan approvals for three new businesses 

In addition, the Planning Board attended eighteen Zoning Board of Appeals 
hearings and made recommendations relevant to requests for special permits 
and variances to grant reUef from the zoning by-laws. 

The Board held pubHc hearings concerning eighteen articles for zoning by- 
laws. These by-laws included proposals for upgrading standards for lots in the 
business district on Route 3A and the downtown business district. The recom- 
mended by-laws also included technical changes to existing by-laws due to revi- 
sions in state statutes. However, due to lack of a quorum, a vote by the Town 
Meeting was never taken. 

Matters coming before the Board this year continue to point to the need for 
topographical and drainage maps for the Town as well as accurate street and 
informational maps. An article requesting funds for this project will again be 
presented at Town Meeting. 

The Board's rules and regulations were amended to provide for a schedule 
of fees for sub-divisions and site plans to be borne by developers: 

Subdivisions: 

Application fee — $150.00; Per lot fee — $25.00; Pre-payment fee for en- 
gineering expenses - $500.00 (unexpended to be refunded) 

Site Plans: 

5,000 sq. ft. building or less - $75.00; 5,000-10,000 sq. ft. - $135.00; 
10,000-20,000 sq. ft. - $250.00; 20,000-40,000 sq. ft. - $350.00; 40,000 
sq. ft. and above - $500.00 

These fees are intended to cover the costs to the Town for engineering reviews 
of these projects.

The 1979 Annual Town Meeting raised $11,000.00 to be used by the Com- 
mittee to develop plans for renovating the Town Hall. These were to be suffi- 
cient not only to insure that the space needs of the various Town Offices would 
be met, but also to obtain preliminary approval from interested regulatory 
agencies in order to get a building permit. The objective was also for the com- 
mittee to be prepared to present to the 1980 Town Meeting a program of reno- 
vation and estimated costs to do the work. 

Conferences and interviews have been held with: 

Secretary of State's Office (Permanent Record Storage) 

State Bulding Code Commission 

Architectural Barriers Board (Handicap Review) 

State and Local Building Inspectors 

State Historical Commission 

Cohasset Historic District Commission 

Cohasset Board of Health 

Cohasset Fire Chief 

Cohasset Board of Selectmen, Assessors, Treasurer, Clerk, Accountant, 

Recreation Department and others who use the Town Hall for one purpose or 

another. As of this writing we have most of the approvals that will be required 

to obtain a building permit. 

We propose to present to the 1980 Annual Town Meeting costs of preparing 
plans and specifications suitable for obtaining bids for renovation work that 
would be considered at a future Town Meeting. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE DOG OFFICER 



Submitted herewith is the report of the Dog Officer for the year ending 
December 31, 1979. 

I received 997 telephone calls at my home, of these calls 318 were pertaining 
to complaints, 421 to lost or found dogs and 258 pertaining to general informa- 
tion. 

I investigated 343 complaints, made recommendations to the selectmen based 
on my findings, and resolved other complaints with parties involved. 

All dogs must be licensed and the tag must be displayed on the dog. This 
practice would greatly expedite finding the owner of stray or lost dogs. 

I would like to see dog owners react more positively and accept their re- 
sponsibihty when confronted by the dog officer with citizen complaints. I 
would also like to see dog owners accept the fact that some dogs do become 
vicious and when this happens, destroy the dog rather than wait until the dog 
maims a human being. Eighty percent of dogs ordered restrained after biting 
a person inadvertently or with complete disregard of the restraining order 
bites someone again. When this happens the dog is ordered destroyed. 

Again, I have had excellent support from the Selectmen. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John H. Barrett 
Dog Officer 



ANNUAL REPORT OF THE DESIGN REVIEW BOARD FOR 1979

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 

The year 1979 has been a rather routine one for the Water Department. 

Mr. Lot E. Bates was elected to the Board in April, replacing Mr. Rocco 
Laugelle, who served the Board faithfully for twelve years. Mr. Bates has proven 
to be a valuable member of the Board. 

Our second year of operation of the new facilities has worked well and with a 
minimum of problems. The demand for water has not met our anticipated ex- 
pectations, necessitating a tight expenditure budget. Total output remains at 
the two hundred twenty -five million gallon range. 

One thousand feet of new 6" main and two hydrants were installed by private 
developers off Atlantic Avenue and connected to the system. Twenty new 
accounts were activated bringing the total of active accounts to nineteen hun- 
dred and fifty four (1954). 

Department personnel have replaced several old hydrants and with the coop- 
eration of the Fire Department have inspected, repaired and painted all others. 
Many old services have been replaced with larger size pipe. In general the system 
is in good condition with the exception of some of the oldest sections. 

In May a contract for a Water Distribution System Study was awarded to 
S.E.A. Consultants, Inc. of Boston. At this writing it is approximately 70% com- 
pleted and will be presented to the Board in early Spring 1980. This report 
will give your Commissioners a tool which will be useful in planning future im- 
provements and expansion of the distribution system. At this time there are 
many new Federal Assistance Programs for water improvements that Cohasset 
will be eligible to take advantage of. 

The Board would like to take this opportunity to extend their thanks to the 
Board of Selectmen, all Town Officials, Department Heads, and Committees for 
their cooperation and support. Special appreciation to our Treatment Plant 
Operators for their enthusiastic and efficient operation of the new plant, the 
service crew and office clerk for their untiring efforts, and to the Superintendent 
for his many years of dedicated service. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Board of Water Commissioners

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

Your School Committee has worked hard this past year to maintain and 
improve the excellence of the Cohasset School System. Both challenges and 
opportunities faced us as we responded to the fiscal conservation which swept 
the entire country during 1979. State mandated budget restraints, abetted by 
declining enrollments and changing priorities, created stresses between and 
among administration, staff, and the Committee. 

Budget hearings consumed much of the first quarter of the year. Reflecting 
the anticipated budget Hmitations, pupil/teacher ratios were examined closely 
and several elementary positions were eliminated, reflecting reduced numbers 
of students. In order to begin complying with PubHc Law 94-142, money was 
allocated for exterior ramping to make all school buildings accessible to wheel- 
chairs. Concern over sharply rising energy costs prompted the inclusion of funds 
to change most of Deer Hill lighting from incandescent to fluorescent. Out of 
current funds, controls to improve burner efficiency were installed at the high 
school and Deer Hill. Energy audits of the heating, ventilating and lighting 
systems have been completed in all three schools and low or no cost improve- 
ments have been implemented. Declining enrollments and federal aid permitted 
the Deer Hill to be reorganized to permit the cafeteria to be re-estabHshed. The 
high school was voted $14,000 to fund a health education teacher. At town 
meeting a budget of $3,530,000, up less than 2%, was presented and accepted 
by the community. 

There were many manifestations of the outstanding efforts by teachers and 
administrators to make a Cohasset education a broad and rewarding one. In 
1979 the special needs area was reviewed by a state team and we were one of 
the very few school systems in Massachusetts to be found in 100% compliance. 
During the winter months we were thrilled by the exploits of the varsity boys' 
basketball team which scrapped its way to the state tournament and nearly went 
all the way to the eastern finals before bowing to a Boston parochial school. 
In the spring we were delighted by the players of "Story Theatre" under the 
direction of Ron Emmons. The dedication and hard work of these talented 
students became evident as they won successive competitions and finally were 
named one of two teams to represent Massachusetts in an all New England 
exhibition. In November we were gratified to learn that the class of 1980 had 
three National Merit semi-finaHsts. Six more seniors received National Merit 
Letters of Commendation which represent scores in the top one percent of 
those taking the Scholastic Aptitude Test. 

To maintain our level of achievement, new programs, in-service training, 
and curriculum development must be encouraged. During 1979 the South Shore 
Council on Alcoholism worked in small groups of students in the high school, 
held meetings to inform parents about the problem and how to deal with it, 
and ran a course for teachers called Basic Alcohol Education which 20 staff 
members completed. During the summer a handwriting curriculum was devel- 
oped by staff members for implementation in the fall. 



218 



In October we began an in-service program on Identifying and Responding to 
Gifted and Talented. Virtually the entire elementary school teaching staff has 
participated. The thrust of this course is towards the higher levels of learning, 
analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The aim is to increase these learning activities 
in the classroom for a wider spectrum of students. 

Administrative improvements continued to command a large part of Com- 
mittee time. After much study, the custodial work force was reorganized to 
provide for longer coverage when the buildings are empty. This was done pri- 
marily to facihtate cleaning but had the secondary benefit of decreasing the 
likelihood of after-school vandalism and unauthorized entry. New exterior 
security lighting at the high school is another response to increasing vandalism. 

During the summer months a sub-committee composed of community 
representatives and staff worked on revising the teacher evaluation instrument. 
In September a new instrument was accepted. Much is hoped for, especially in 
the area of improvement of teaching. However, it will take several years before 
we can be sure it is right for the Cohasset School System. 

In the fall the Committee began the task of approving job descriptions 
for every position in the school system. A board sub-committee spent many 
hours of work on this project, interviewing many staff members, to update 
descriptions previously written by the Superintendent, before presenting their 
work to the Committee. This important task will be completed in early 1980. 

In 1979 we lost two veteran members of the School Committee. Mrs. Jose- 
phine Mahoney DiGirolamo, Vice-chairperson resigned, and Mrs. Doris Golden, 
Chairperson for the last five years did not stand for re-election. Their wise 
counsel and great experience are sorely missed. Elected in their places were 
Mrs. Diana Kornet for the unexpired term and Mrs. Martha Gjesteby. Returned 
for a full term was Mrs. Irene Brown. 

On five occasions during the year, both before and after the change in Com- 
mittee make-up, the question of whether to release some ten acres of school 
land for the purpose of construction of a municipal sewer plant was discussed. 
The Committee consistently voted to retain control of the land for two reasons. 
First, the land is the only large block of land suitable under current regulations 
for school construction. Second, the proposed plant would be situated only 
400 ft. from the Joseph Osgood School, close enough for odors and possibly 
airborne viruses to be a potential problem. 

This report is dedicated to the staff and administration of the Cohasset PubHc 

Schools. We thank them for all their efforts, individual and collective, for the 

children of Cohasset. We also recognize the many parent volunteers whose 

efforts are helping us approach our goal of individualized education despite 

fiscal restraints.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

It is with pleasure that I submit to you my fifth annual report as Superin- 
tendent of Schools. Drafting the 1979 report to the citizens and taxpayers of 
the Town of Cohasset is a challenge to the Superintendent, since he must reflect 
upon not only that which has taken place during the past calendar year, but 
also that which has occurred during the decade of the seventies. During the 
ten-year span of the seventies, the Cohasset School Department has been served 
by three Superintendents. Each made his positive contributions to the education 
of the youth of the community. 

The decade of the seventies was one of contrast. In the early part of the 
decade, it was typified by extreme liberalism, student revolts, dependence upon 
drugs, and anti-authoritarian attitudes. The decade closes not on a liberal trend, 
but in a conservative mood. We are now talking about "back to basics", disci- 
pline, law and order, and conformity rather than dissidence. Unfortunately, we 
still have the problem of alcohol and drugs in our society, with a greater empha- 
sis on alcohol and a lesser dependence on the hard core drugs in our community. 

The seventies witnessed a further breakdown of the family and with it the 
resulting disintegration of many family support systems which previously helped 
youngsters to mature as responsible adults. The breakdown of the family unit 
has caused us to become more concerned with the physical, mental and emo- 
tional development of each chUd. Correspondingly, the school has been expected 
to do more for children since, it is sad to say, parents in many cases no longer 
have the time to devote to the upbringing of their children. Single parenthood 
and a larger number of working mothers tend to promote a feeling of solitude 
for growing children. Programs to help these children, unrelated to reading, 
writing, and arithmetic, have become an essential part of our school system. 

The world continues to be in turmoil. Not only do we have the nagging 
problem of the Middle East, but also the increasing importance of China as a 
world power, the rapid development of the country of Brazil, the influence of 
Cuba in world affairs, and the volatility of our own American political scene 
in which a president and vice-president were dishonored, and a forthcoming 
presidential election with no less than 9 announced candidates: 6 Republican 
and 3 Democratic. 

Although there are many unsettling factors external to the school system, 
these have not caused us to veer from a determination to produce an academical- 
ly sound educational program for the children of Cohasset. That, I am proud 
to say is my mission, as it always has been and will continue to be. During the 
past calendar year, the Cohasset School Department has been able to achieve 
many notable successes in areas frequently overlooked in the evaluation of a 
school system. I wish to bring to your attention the notable achievements that 
we have attained in our student activity areas, and principally those of our dra- 
matic, instrumental, and vocal music clubs. We were honored by winning the 
Massachusetts Drama Festival in Boston with a play entitled "Story Theatre." 
This was a first for Cohasset and we hope not the last. We have many talented 
youngsters. We must encourage them to pursue their creative abilities beyond 



222 



the confines of the academic classroom. Thus, participation in drama, in music, 
and in the full array of the arts, is absolutely essential if we are to develop versa- 
tility in our children. 

Five of our students were selected to play for the Massachusetts All-State 
Band in 1979. Our Barbershop Quartet and several of our choral groups received 
accolades for various performances on the South Shore. We hope to be able to 
build upon these successes in the future. Unfortunately, the press focuses 
too much attention on athletic accomplishments and too Httle on the demon- 
strated creative talents of youngsters. The self-confidence, the self-satisfaction, 
and the enjoyment of developing a creative performance for others to witness 
is a gratifying experience. I hope that we will be able to encourage a greater 
number of our youngsters to pursue careers in the arts in subsequent years. 

The much heralded back to basics movements, and the efforts by the Massa- 
chusetts State Department of Education to determine competency standards 
for school systems is not new to us. For the past 5 years we have been using the 
results of our standardized tests to make specific improvements in our academic 
programs. In compHance with the Massachusetts Department of Education 
regulations, we have a joint community-school committee working on basic 
competency standards for our schools. We are well on our way toward achieving 
the goals of the Department of Education and hope to complete the task at an 
early date. 

Each year we undertake a systematic review of all of our curricula areas and 
make necessary changes to strengthen individual academic programs. 1979 
was no exception to our determination to continue to improve upon the pro- 
grams that we offer the children of Cohasset. At the elementary level a group of 
our staff members worked on a summer curriculum committee and developed a 
sequential handwriting program for K-6. This system called the "Johnson Hand- 
writing Method" has been tailored to Cohasset and is presently in operation. It 
is our long-range hope that this new program will enable us to achieve a con- 
sistency and uniformity in the formation of letters and handwriting in our 
elementary schools and ultimately throughout the system. 

As a result of a continued decline in enrollment at the primary school level 
we were able to introduce a class for severely handicapped children at the 
Joseph Osgood School for the first time. The class identified as the "Collabora- 
tive Class" functions under the sponsorship of the South Shore Collaborative: 
a consortium of eight local communities pooling economic and human resources 
so as to better serve the requirements of low incidence handicapped children. 
Another exciting development this year has been the introduction into the sec- 
ond grade of a program called "Project Mainstream." This program is staffed 
by parent volunteers and offers our second graders an opportunity to learn 
about the various problems experienced by adults who are living with these 
handicaps. Specific instruction was given in helping children understand blind- 
ness, deafness, physical handicaps and mental retardation. The success of this 
program at the second grade has caused us to study the possibiUties of expanding 
this effort to other grade levels. The Superintendent wishes to acknowledge the 
service of the volunteer parents who helped with this program, and to thank the 



223 



individuals in the four handicapped classifications who spent the day in the 
Osgood School talking to our children about their specific handicaps. 

A new language arts program entitled "Language Arts for Daily Use" has 
been introduced across all three grade levels (4-6) at the Deer Hill School. 
Along these same lines, a pilot program in spelling resulted in the purchase of 
new materials for grades 4 and 5. The School Department is making a special 
effort to enhance the spelling abilities of our children at all grade levels. Initial 
efforts are already underway and sums for the purchase of additional spelling 
materials will be included in the 1980-1981 school budget. 

Numerous program improvements have taken place at the Junior/Senior High 
School. We are pleased to report that we have noticed an increase from 10 
to 23 in the number of students who have enrolled in our computer science 
course. The importance of computers in the future cannot be underestimated. 
We are on the threshold of another technological explosion which will occur 
during the decade of the 1980's. Correspondingly, we intend to encourage a 
greater number of our youngsters who demonstrate an interest in the use of 
the computer to become fully involved in our programs. We plan to provide 
them with a strong base for future use after high school. 

In direct response to the nation-wide decline in SAT scores, which is not 
evident in Cohasset, we are conducting a Scholastic Aptitude Test review for 
all Algebra II students. Extra help is provided to youngsters on Fridays of each 
week. The importance that we place upon mathematical skills is evidenced 
by our monitoring of all college preparatory classes in the areas of Algebra I, 
Geometry, and Algebra II. Every other week a skills development quiz is given 
on Fridays and youngsters who are determined to be lacking in a mathematical 
skill are encouraged to attend after-school sessions or are assigned to the mathe- 
matics lab in an effort to help them overcome their weaknesses. This program 
has been successful, and we intend to continue it. 

One of the most notable changes in our secondary school curriculum took 
place in the field of Social Studies. We reduced 29 ten-week quarter courses 
to approximately 8 electives which are now taught either on a semester (half 
year) or a full year basis. Greater stress has been given to 20th Century or 
Modern History as opposed to the Ancient and Medieval. Within the Social 
Studies Department, we are stressing such skills as: writing, spelling, and prepa- 
ration of research papers using a standardized form. 

In an effort to promote consistency in research and term paper design, the 
English Department distributed a printed document entitled "Style Manual" 
to all students in grades 9-12 in September. The implementation of the Style 
Manual was the result of curriculum study committees that took place during 
the 1978 and 1979 calendar years. We believe that a uniform approach to re- 
search and term paper design will greatly assist our youngsters in their work, 
not only in the high school, but in their higher education pursuits. 



224 



As a result of a penetrating analysis by our staff and others serving on sum- 
mer curriculum committees during 1978 and 1979, we have revamped our 
science programs in grades 7-12. In grade 7 we are now offering courses in "Life 
Science" and in grade 8 "Earth Science." Correspondingly, at the senior high 
school level we have included a practical course in consumer science for non- 
college bound students. In response to suggestions from recent graduates, we 
have instituted a new course called "Anatomy and Physiology" for grade 1 1 and 
12 students who are college oriented. This course is designed to be of specific 
value to youngsters who wish to pursue a career in a medical-related field such as 
Health Education, Nursing, and the various Therapists' programs. We believe 
these significant changes will enable us to provide a soHd science program for 
all of our children in the Junior/Senior High School. 

Our Foreign Language Department has remained stable for the past several 
yeras. I am pleased to report that several of our students took the Advanced 
Placement exam in Latin in 1979 and did well. Additionally, we look forward 
to the first class to graduate from Cohasset High School with a six -year sequence 
in Spanish in June of 1980. 

System-wide we have been able to develop a new physical education program 
for some of our special needs children. Our "Adapted Physical Education 
Program" is therapeutic in nature. It is designed to strengthen, develop flexi- 
bility and increase endurance of youngsters who are lacking in motor coor- 
dination. Personnel in our Physical Education Department and our Occupa- 
tional Therapist have spent considerable time in addition to their regularly 
assigned classes to provide extra help to these children. 

There are three additional and significant items worthy of mention in the 
Town Report. The School Department received a Comprehensive Education 
Training Act Grant (CETA) for $131,998. This Grant enabled us to employ ten 
men to work in custodial and maintenance programs throughout the school 
system. The extra manpower enabled us to renovate and refurbish many class- 
rooms and other areas previously overlooked due to budget restraints. Work 
has been completed on fitting exterior doors, replacing glass, painting, building 
storage areas, instaUing ceilings, restoring classroom cabinets and counters 
and greatly improving the general appearance of our schools through a planned 
program of clean-up, fix-up, and paint-up. We look forward to being able to 
continue part of this program into the 1980 calendar year. 

Secondly, we received from the School Lunch Program a 75% participation 
of the Federal Government for the renovation of the former grade 4 and 5 open 
space area into a cafeteria for the Deer Hill School. The Federal Government's 
share of this project amounted to $15,619.43. This sum of money, together 
with approximately $6,000. of budgeted funds provided by the taxpayers of 
Cohasset enabled us to completely renovate and equip the cafeteria at the 
Deer Hill School. We now have a Hot Lunch Program which is serving the needs 
of our children and has been extremely well received by our youngsters, the 
faculty, and parents who have toured this newly renovated facility. 



225 



Thirdly, we received a grant of $1,758. from the Commonwealth Institute, 
an agency of the Massachusetts department of Education. We have used this 
money in conjunction with Bridgewater State Teachers' College and are offer- 
ing a three-credit graduate course to our teachers in the area of the Gifted and 
Talented children. We are presently involved in a pilot program for our Gifted 
and Talented in grade 6; we will include grade 5 in the program starting in 
January of 1980 and, subject to budget approval by the School Committee, 
hope to include grade 4 as of January 1981. 

The Cohasset School Department wishes to acknowledge the fine efforts 
of the Wire Department and in particular the work of Stephen F. Wigmore, 
Superintendent of Wires, and his two assistants, Richard Gallo and James 
McNamara. Mr. Wigmore and the members of the Wire Department have per- 
formed numerous services for the School Department in a cheerful and efficient 
manner. Much of their effort this year has been devoted to helping us to be- 
come "energy efficient" electrically. The members of the Wire Department have 
replaced incandescent lights in approximately ten classrooms with fluorescent 
fixtures, replaced exterior security lighting, repaired the intercom and clock 
systems, helped us with the electrical wiring of our football scoreboard and 
portable sound systems, replaced and repaired numerous electrical plugs, fix- 
tures, and circuits throughout the school system. Each of these items has en- 
hanced the daily operation of the school buildings. We feel most confident 
and comfortable with the work that the Wire Department does for us. The 
efforts of these men have saved the Town thousands of dollars of electrical 
charges within the past year. As a result of their continued efforts, I, as Super- 
intendent of Schools, wish to acknowledge their service on behalf of the School 
Department and all the citizens of the Town of Cohasset. 

In conclusion I would like to state that you, the citizens and taxpayers of 
the Town of Cohasset, should be extremely proud of the accompHshments of 
the school department during the past calendar year. We are accountable. It 
has been an extremely productive year for us, one in which we have attained 
many notable achievements, and we certainly hope that our 1980 report can be 
as commendable. To all of the people who helped to make this such a satisfying 
year, my sincere thank you on behalf of the children of Cohasset. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John F. Maloney, Ed.D. 
Superintendent of Schools

SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT 

TREASURER'S REPORT 

Fiscal Year July 1, 1978 to June 30, 1979 

In accordance with Section XII of the South Shore Regional School District 
Agreement effective January 6, 1960, I submit herewith details of the fiscal 
year July 1, 1978 thru June 30, 1979, Financial transactions of the School 
District. 

Details are presented with respect to the July 1, 1978 to June 30, 1979 
estimated expenditures and their apportionment to member towns, actual re- 
ceipts and expenditures, and abalance sheet and statement of outstanding debt 
as of June 30, 1979. 

On August 23, 1978 the School District Committee voted to approve a total 
reduction in the 1978-1979 Operating Cost Assessment to Member Towns by 
the amount of $127,890.00 in accordance with the provisions of Section 59 of 
Chapter367 Acts of 1978. 

Total operating expenditures for the fiscal year were $1,357,762.98 and 
Capital Outlay expenditures were $172,986,84, details of which are shown in 
the expenditure schedule. 

Various additional expenditures under self-explanatory titles were made as 
per details set forth in the expenditure schedule. 

Salary increases for all employees for the fiscal year 1978-1979 averaged 
7.47% and the total of all salaries paid equaled approximately 71% of Operating 
Costs. 

Construction of our "mini-addition" originally due to be completed in 
December 1977 has not yet been completed. On March 26, 1979 an initial 
meeting between the legal representatives of the School District Committee 
and Scaldini Inc., the general contractor for our "mini-addition" met with the 
American Board of Arbitrators, Boston, Massachusetts to discuss the required 
procedures necessary to effect a solution in this case. Since that time further 
delays have been encountered as the result of a superior court order including 
six sub-contractors in this dispute as well. As of the close of the fiscal year June 
30, 1979 no further action has taken place. 

Final settlement of this case will be long delayed in view of the necessity of 
hearing aU of the participants now involved in coordinating and evaluating their 
testimony and arriving at a decision relative thereto. 

On April 18, 1979 a temporary occupancy permit was approved by the 
Hanover Building Inspector and our long delayed "mini-addition" was occupied 
for school purposes, while awaiting a decision in the arbitration proceedings with 
respect to the completion of this building. 

A third of five annual reimbursements in the amount of $54,077.30 was 

232 



received during the year from the State School Building Assistance Commission 
relative to the construction of our "mini-addition" building. 

Surplus Revenue was determined to be $826,643.16 as of June 30, 1979 
which was derived from the following sources:

school district resulting in a remaining balance of $726,643.16.
